Note From The Editor


Jeffrey here. I have a few things that I'd like to go over with everyone - as well as some questions. If you don't mind, take a couple of minutes and leave a comment with your thoughts.

We're Looking For A Staff Writer

We're currently looking for one more person to write a weekly tutorial. Here is the catch; I'm looking for someone unique. We've got PHP, WordPress, and jQuery covered. I need someone to cover everything else - from Flash to Ruby. If you think you have the goods, Email Us and we'll talk! The pay is $150 per tutorial.

What Do You Want?

I'd like to know what sort of tutorials you are craving? The community determines what we post, so please leave a comment with your opinion. Personally, I'd like to see more frameworks and libraries covered - like Ruby, ASP.NET, Drupal, MooTools, etc. I'd like to post some more Flash tutorials as well. What do you want?

Quick Tips: Stay Or Go?

My plan is to have a full tutorial every morning (Central Time) and a quick tip in the evening. Are you enjoying these quick tips, or would you prefer that we focus more on the full tutorials? Personally, I enjoy five minute tips. My days are busy and allow little time for deciphering long tutorials - although I try to make time whenever I can. P.S. On my personal site, I, just today, rolled out a series of "Two Minute Video Tips" to be posted every day during the work week. Be sure to check those out if you enjoy such things.

Premium Service Is On The Way

We are currently working to bring a "premium" members service to NETTUTS. For $19 per month, you'll gain access to many features - TBD. Once again, my question to you is: What would you expect for your $19 per month? Personally, I'd like to see exclusive video tutorials. Other ideas might be t-shirts and/or a magazine subscription? This is all speculation right now, but your feedback will help us a great deal!

One Last Request

Over the next week or so, I'm going to be compiling a massive list of the best web development books available - as voted by you! Please take a few seconds to vote. After I've received all of the submissions, I'll create a posting that details the top ten or twenty!

Thanks, everyone!

    Kickstarting Your Rails EducationRails education retina preview
    It's been a long time since I last coded on the server-side. In fact, if you've read some of my tutorials, you may have noticed that I use ColdFusion as my application server. While ColdFusion still works great, it definitely doesn't have the panache and coolness of newer server-side technologies like Ruby on Rails. Wanting to be a bit more modern, I've decided to jump on the Ruby on Rails train. Both Ruby and the Rails framework are proven technologies that are stable and widely embraced so I think it's a great direction to head to in my server-side renaissance.Read More…

    Cardinal Quest: How I Made $60,000 From My Indie GameCardinal quest 400px
    You probably hear a lot about wildly successful indie games (The Binding of Isaac, Fez, Braid, Minecraft, and so on) and on occasion also about unsuccessful ones. In this article I'm going to tell you about my experience on the middle road: making an indie game that achieved modest success. Cardinal Quest financed my humble lifestyle for about a year after its August 2011 release, and is still occasionally making me some decent pocket money more than two years after its release.Read More…
